What makes the New Year beautiful? Gathering together as a family. Giving and receiving love from our friends and kin. Having hopes for a brighter future. But perhaps the most beautiful thing is our faith in Christ, for He is the source of all this beauty. We put Christ in the centre of our lives, and we get a sense of purpose, the strength and wisdom to overcome our doubts, fears and difficulties.
View this message from Acrhpriest Andrey Lemeshonok, the spiritual father of Saint Elisabeth Convent, and share with us the joy of this winter season, the anticipation of Christ’s nativity and the great hope, strength and reassurance that we can all have by putting Christ in the centre of our lives. As Father Andrey says, fear not, tread boldly, thank God for all we have, and ask him to give us strength for the next year. May we all have a successful year in Jesus Christ!
